We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

KHS65 AUTHOR PUBLISHES BOOK

Jane McClaren has written a book called Honest Eating. You can buy it at bookstores and www.amazon.com and if you bring yours along to the reunion Jane will autograph it for you. It's not your mother's diet book, I've read it and highly recommend it. You can read my review at Amazon.com, you'll see it, Wedgwood Lover the writer. Basically it's a book of Jane's experiences and what she learned from her experiences about not only dieting, but thinking about our food and our lives, and how those things interact with one another and with our own 'selves'. It is NOT a book of lectures and criticisms, nor is it a list of exactly what you can do to be thin, it's a thought-provoking hand-book if you will, that might get you thinking about your own habits and how to make them better. Left Bank Books here in St. Louis is one store carrying it. Here is the link to ORDER JANE'S BOOK at Left Bank. Click the image below to see a larger legible version~ I ordered my copy from Amazon and in their usual speedy style, I got it right away. Congratulations to Jane for the work she has done to produce this! It will be a valuable tool for many and just another example of our classmates making KHS65 look good!! I suspect you'll find some reviews of it here once some of us read it! You can post YOUR review of it as a comment, or send to me and I'll post it as a Blog Post if you prefer. As my kids tell me on the rare occasions when I do something they like, GOOD JOB!
